But this time, it means goodbye. Goodbye to the island of Kauai! You've been an amazing home for the past 3+ weeks. I am now officially back in my hometown in Maryland... but only for two days! Ah! I leave on Saturday for vacation #2. This time, only for one week. As soon as I come back from this vacation, I start my New Educator's Orientation training! I couldn't be more excited that this journey is really getting started.
Training week starts on Monday the 15th, but I get Tuesday to myself to work on my classroom! I was eager to get into my classroom today since I have been gone for over three weeks, but unfortunately the floors were being waxed so I couldn't go in my room. [Fortunately, as well, because Building Services is awesome and I'll have clean floors!]
My agenda for the next two days that I am home is to get cutting, laminating, re-cutting, and creating! I was able to create a lot of digital files while on vacation since I brought my laptop along, but I am excited to be home so that I can continue working on the hands-on projects for my classroom. At the top of my list is my rocking chair! As you may have seen, I made a student rocking chair that I call my Share Chair (you can read about it HERE). I am super excited to decorate my personal rocking chair as well! I have seen tons of cute ideas on Pinterest and can't wait to reveal mine to you all. I'll be honest, it probably won't get finished before I leave for the beach on Saturday at 6:00am!
I've put together a "little" to-do list. Lists are life-savers.
- teacher rocking chair
- birthday board
- classroom jobs display
- classroom procedures
- finish labeling library books & bin
- lose my mind
There are many things to add to that list, but those are the only things I can focus on right now while I'm still in beach-mode!
I'm totally taking any advice and tips from teachers!
What do you think should be at the top of
my priorities list as a first-year teacher? :)
